Everyone agrees, the US Military, like so many parts of American society, has a serious problem with sexual abuse. Making things worse in the military was a criminal justice system that was protective of accused abusers, and abusive towards complaining victims.

Montgomery described to KSFR's Dave Marash on HERE AND THERE, the case of Air Force Lieutenant General Craig Franklin.
